About Transfercar
Transfercar helps people and rental car companies make and save money on under-used rental cars.

Rental operators need to relocate cars between their branches in order to position their fleet for new hires. Transfercar facilitates contact between rental operators that need to relocate their vehicles, and travellers who would like to drive their cars free of charge.

The rental operators submit their relocations to Transfercar using the web or integrations with fleet management systems. Prospective drivers then request the relocations through the website, mobile phones or email. The Transfercar solution delivers financial benefits to both rental car companies and flexible travellers.
